Course: Short Course on Chinese Contemporary Art @AW Asia

On four Tuesday nights in October, AW Asia (here) is putting on a free Short Course in Chinese Contemporary Art. Information on the course can be found here. The four sessions (an hour and a half each) include:
  • From Mao to Now: An Overview of Chinese Contemporary Art
  • Evening with Melissa Chiu, Director of the Asia Society and Museum
  • Visit with Christopher Phillips, Curator ICP
  • 21st Century China & the Global Art World
These look like excellent sessions for those of us who need to get better informed on contemporary photography in China. Registration is required.

In a related note, Larry Warsh, the collector behind AW Asia, has recently sold groups of Chinese contemporary photography to both MoMA and the Getty. (here)
